    Default Another newbie.

    Hi everyone.

    Joined a few days ago, live in central Florida and own a 1969 El Camino SS numbers matching with 49k original miles and a 1964 El Camino.

    Pics are in my album.

    Greetings and welcome to the forum.
    I once owned a 1980 that was factory equipped with a floor mounted Hurst 3-speed. That was absolutely mint- but it was a 6 cylinder and was all show and no go. Sold that and got a 1979 350 auto that wasn't so pristine in appearance but could smoke the wheels until the cows came home- whatever the hell that expression means? Sold that, raised a family (two seaters aren't conducive to toting kids) and many years later got a 1987 that was low miles and show room. Ended up selling that for a price I couldn't refuse and now I admire El Caminos from afar.
    Now I'm a Vette man and have been for a while.

    Welcome to Cool Rides.

    Any chance of seeing some more pics of the center console? Looks great and would like to see more of it.
    If winning was easy, then the losers would be winners.
